A Self-Maintaining, Fee-Supported Division of a Family Agency

By Leonard Rohmer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1965

The author recounts the experience of his agency, Westchester Jewish Community Services, with the establishment of a fee-supported, non-profit, non-sectarian counseling division, intended to provide family counseling to higher-income families who previously had not been reached by the agency. He describes the considerations which entered into the division's planning and implementation, the rationale behind its fee structure, the reactions of agency staff to the plan, and the value of the program in expanding the agency's reach within the community.
